hillary clinton, chuck hagel, leon panetta and now john brennan. are they getting what they want out of this, which is basically to try to put some mud on the president's record? >> absolutely. i think that's been the clear goal. >> i think actually not. if you look particularly at the hearings of chuck hagel and hillary clinton, you see a lot of basically republican free lansing going on. i was surprised at how the lack of collective, thoughtful questioning -- you would have thought that they would have gotten in behind closed doors beforehand and said, what's our line of questioning going to be, what is second kwengs and thoughtful? in fact, that wasn't the case which is why hillary clinton most vividly gave as good as she got and came out on the winning side. i think hagel, given his inconsistencies came away unscarred. i think it's also interesting, most folks may not know this, the suggestion made yesterday by dianne feinstein of having another court look at this stuff, well, she made that suggestion that at the very moment a particular federal judge, who i happen to know is sit
. popular vote, hillary clinton is day's removed from public office but a new poll finds her public image soaring. time to put another log on the 2016 speculation fire. and the northeast braces for a giant winter storm that could deliver historic and dangerous amounts of snow combined with gale force winds. the latest update on what to expect in minutes. good morning from washington. it's friday, february 8, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." from the moment cia nominee john brennan entered his confirmation hearing on thursday, it was clear that the first major public discussion of the obama administration's drone program would be on the combative end, offering a rare public display of democratic dismay with their president a president's policies. after protesters interrupted brennan's opening statement five times, committee chair dianne feinstein cleared the room leaving it nearly ended as brennan defended the drone program and senators shared their frustrationses. >> with the exception of mr. panetta, i feel i've been drug around by every director. >> 11 united states senators asked
it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th

. we want to talk about it in the war room. joining me now, former aid to president clinton, and former assistant to george w. bush. good to see you. >> keith, let me start with you. do we think there will be a main headline out of the president's speech? do we think there will be a singular focus? >> think it will be focused mostly on the economy and jobs? the president ran on that issue last year and what's happened is that since november we've gotten sidetracked talking about deficit reduction. we talked about the fiscal cliff until the end of the year and we're talking about the debt deals and we're talking about sequestration and none of these terms came up during the debates or the election. what people are concerned about is the unemployment rate which is 7.9%. they're concerned about what the economy will do in the future and we saw with the gdp numbers just last quarter. when the gdp started to decline in the last quarter and it was because the government was pulling back and they needed to spend money and they wanted to reinvest in education and structure. >> you don't expect
. >> it is something that i don't understand. people spoke about hillary clinton when she was running for office and when she was first lady. one of the things that seems to be a little bit different here with regard to people talking about the high school coach that you talked about referred to the first lady as michelle fat butt obama. and what conservative radio host rush limbaugh has referred to her on one more than one occasion as michelle my butt obama. what we believe is beautiful or not beautiful just because certainly people feel that a lot of what black women look is not something that they consider is beauty, and in the african-american community we see all of us as beautiful regardless of how we look, and its disconcerting that it's okay to say these things about the first lady of the united states. who by the way she's not over weight. look at the pieces written by my colleagues. >> jennifer: she's totally beautiful. she's not the anorexic stick that fashion magazines tout as ideal, due do not think that it makes her a better and powerful role model for young women. >> absolutely. o
consulate could not sustain an attack. senator graham wanted to know why secretary clinton testified she never saw that cable. >> i don't know that she didn't know about the cable. >> she said she didn't. >> then -- >> are you stunned that she didn't? >> i would call myself surprised that she didn't. >> senator mccain asked about the u.s. providing weapons to the syrian opposition. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? do you support that? >> we did. >> last weekend the "new york times" reported clinton and petraeus asked the white house last summer for permission to arm the veerian rebels. senator rand paul hinted last week that the annex in benghazi benefiting may have been involved in moving weapons from libya to syria via turkey. chris? >> jennifer griffin reporting from the pentagon. thanks. let's get reaction now from the vice chair of the senate intelligence committee, georgia republican sax by chambliss. you were busy in both hearings
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
, particularly the second half of the 90s, would you have called that the clinton bull market? >> absolutely, for one big reason. government spending was below 19%. i want that g out of there and the i up. >> in the 1980s you would have called that the reagan bull market? >> absolutely. >> but i can't get you to say it's the obama rally. >> what but? >> i think it's the bernanke profit making businesses ceo lean and mean rally, maerk's resilient private secretator, t heart of the free market economy is holding up better than i would have guessed and good for them. thank you very much and michael, who likes some decades better than others. now, folks, have you seen a weather forecast lately? not good, massive snowstorm on the way for the northeast. they're talking about this being an historic event. we have the latest on that just ahead. come on, nowadays lots of people go by themselves. no they don't. hey son. have fun tonight. ♪ ♪ back against the wall ♪ ain't nothin to me ♪ ain't nothin to me [ crowd murmurs ] hey! ♪ [ howls ] ♪ i'm lorenzo. i work for 47 different companies. w

in charge with the people on the ground. >> would you say secretary clinton in charge. >> pardon me? >> was secretary clinton in charge. >> the people in charge, were the ambassador there at benghazi. >> no. but, they can't, you know, they were trying to save their lives. rick: richard grenell, a former spokesperson for the last four u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. byron york, is chief political correspondent at the "washington examiner". gentlemen, good to see you both. rick, you first. you worked at a number of administrations. odd that the president himself would be so hands off while one of our consulates was under attack? >> yeah, very odd. i think it's, mitt romney was right. it really was a weak response from the president. he was off in vegas at a fund-raiser. the simple fact is, they took a couple pictures in the oval office where secretary panetta was briefing the president. but the president was hands off. the other thing we learned, secretary clinton was hand off. these employees that were under attack were state department employees. where was secretary clinton? she didn't
chiefs chairman or with secretary of state clinton. we also understand that on that night, the state department, or the government chartered an airplane in tripoli and flew some security agents in to benghazi. but it's my understanding, they were heldum at the airport. tell us what you found out about that. >> well, there's a six-person rescue team left tripoli to reinforce the annex in benghazi. they left at 1:30-- excuse me they aride at 1:30 in the morning libyan time. it was not until 5:00 that they could get to the annex. they were held up for three and a half hours at the airport had problems with the militias releasing them and a lot of bureaucratic is that fuse. here's my question-- did the president ever pick up the phone and call the libyan government and say "let though people out of the airport. they need to get to the annex to protect our people under siege?" did the president at any time during the eight-hour attack pick up the phone and call anybody in libya to get help for these folks? secretary clinton said she was screaming on the phone at libyan officials. there's
cut, hillary clinton, who he likes a lot. obviously left of center. some of the media figures that are left of center that he likes, but then he has a particular rage toward you. he mentions rodney king, the o.j. simpson case. your reaction to that? >> well, when you read it, sean, he's all over the place. he can't seem to focus on one thing that actually is his focus of his anger. i mean, when you read about the officers and the supervisors on l.a.p.d., there's nobody that he likes and nobody that he agrees with. for some reason, it seems, it almost appears that he came on l.a.p.d. with a pre-conceived idea of a corrupt department, a violent department, a racist department and then he went about to find the evidence no matter where he found it or no matter how, or how much taken out of context it was. he actually did that and it seemed to actually fuel his anger. >> sean: there also seemed to be a certain level of narcissism here and he's focused on himself, but you're right about one thing, that manifesto did show that he had an agenda almost from the very beginning, he says

assistant to president obama and adviser to hillary clinton and is msnbc diplomacy analyst. great to see you. you've spent so much time on this never ending mission of middle east peace. john kerry wants to tackle it, the president is going it tackle it early on. what is the cost benefit analysis for what can be accomplished now? >> i don't think the expectations are very high in terms of the president going out now and trying to produce something p i think what he's trying to do is send a signal that this is an issue that we care about, the secretary of state, john kerry, will be working on it. this is not going to be something that we ignore, but i think it's also going to be put into context. there are an enormous array of issues insyria, egypt. so i think his going to israel to seet see the pld and presided king ever jordan, it allows him to talk about although issues. >> how much does the past tension with netanyahu play here or is this netanyahu weakened by his own smaller than anticipated re-election margin? does he need president obama to a certain extent to validate himself as one w

hillary clinton was voted into the senate. we've seen people in washington, sonny bono, gopher on the love boat and people love celebrity and name recogniti recognition, and there are people in kentucky not of the mind of mitch mcconnell. why is he worried, a, she hasn't announced she was running and b, i thought he was secure in his-- >> i don't know what karl will have to say about it and we should note at that ashley judd is not chris rock and tony bennett. she went to the kentucky school of government my alma mater, i almost flunked out i heard that she did well. so she's very smart, but she doesn't mix it up and won't come on the program and trying to have her on for years and she simply won't do it and i think that the strategy is, look, this woman's going to be able to get a lot of money, all right, because she's a celebrity. >> right. >> so the guys out in hollywood writing her checks and we want to kind of define her now before she gets any momentum, a small deal for rove and his crew, right? >> yes, a very smart strategy, but i think it's off the mark because she's not a vacuous
with the consequences -- consequences of those decisions. the global jihadist threat that secretary clinton pointed out does not have the belief that a democracy is a good idea. that a people electing representatives in a republican form of government is a good idea. they believed that we need some religious leader like the ayatollah khomeini or now in iran. they need a religious leader like that that tells us what we can do, that makes all his decisions under shari'a law. . all of those who met during the revolution, they believed in the power of prayer to god, and that's why they prayed during that time, but they wanted much to have the chance to worship as they chose. be they muslim, hindu. but especially judeo-christian beliefs where jews and christians had traditionally suffered so much persecution. they wanted the chance for people to worship as they please or not worship, but they knew to make that possible had he had to -- they had to pray to god. that's why we are observing once again tomorrow the national prayer breakfast where our president will speak, where we will have a fantastic testimon
the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton, and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria. >> we did. >> you did support that? >> we did. >> reporter: that's the first time that i've heard that the defense department and military officials say that they had recommended arming syrian rebels. you'll remember over the weekend that "the new york times" reported that last summer petraeus and clinton approached the white house for permission to arm the rebels. "the new york times" says that the white house rejected that request. however, there have been some implications from questions from senators on the hill as to whether in fact what was going on in benghazi was that there was some sort of operation to repackage arms, send them through turkey to syrian rebels. this is what was the basis of the question by senator rand paul to hillary clinton during the benghazi hearings last week. here is what they said. >> now my question is, is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow tr

marco rubio was trying and similarly we saw this in the hearing with hillary clinton, he was trying very hard to show that he is in command of the facts and he is ready to be, you know, presidential and handle this kind of information, and, instead, what he actually showed, particularly if you watch there's a little bit more to that exchange and it really shows how little he understands about how our relationships with foreign governments work, about how -- the role of the cia because there's this whole question -- part of what brennan had been talking about was whether or not this is a role the cia should continue to play in this instance. so instead he really revealed how little he understands and how hard he's trying to prove to all of us that he is -- he's got his big boy pants on. >> yes, indeed. mike, anyone who lost a family member in the attacks of 9/11 which were planned overseas is not going to have any problem with killing potential terrorists in afghanistan or in the yemen. but don't we need to confront the fact that if this is our strategy, then there is unlikely to be an en

, the president led a medal of honor ceremony for staff sergeant clinton remache whose actions during an attack helped save the lives of dozens of his comrades. and then there is the concerted effort by republicans to deny another distinguished veteran from serving his country as secretary of defense. a senate committee scheduled to vote on the nomination of chuck hagel tomorrow. senator john mccain says, i will not participate in any walkout of tomorrow's committee vote, which i guess is what counts for statesmanship among republicans these days, but as to whether mr. mccain will support his one-time friend, well, that remains a bit of a mystery. >> we've still got some more information. >> are you going to support him for defense secretary? >> i will see the rest of the answers to his questions, but certainly i have very grave concerns. i think we need some more information. >> of course, senator lindsey graham brings up an excellent point, one i'm sure more republicans will soon be asking, why stop at chuck hagel? >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorshi
also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we are seeing and how much actual damage we are seeing inflicted. i mean republicans in particular have argued a lot about the idea of economic uncertainty. >> sure. >> that we should pursue governments in a way that we don't put too many question marks ahead of the american p
